How to level a Domed Cake

A quick and easy way of levelling a domed cake is to put it back into the tin it was baked in and slicing the top off.

If the cake is shallower than the tin, you can prop up using a cake board(s) which is an inch smaller than the cake to prop up the cake, saucer etc  then put the cake back in and level as above

  1. 🙂 Oh I’m so glad I’m not the only one who’s cakes rise too high.
    I’ve done this so many times … but you forgot to mention the top !
    You simply must eat the top to dispose of the evidence before presenting the finished cake to the family. 😀
